I've just written the above post and included are 2 video's which are hosted on photobucket. the images, also on photobucket load fine but the video doesn't seem to work. I've posted this on another forum (www.woodworkuk.com) with no problem so not sure what I am doing wrong.

Did you upload them to UTube first, and then copy and then paste the link in your FOG post?
If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

It is working.  Probably just a little while longer to load.  One thing about videos.  If you only want your videos seen by a select few then photobucket might be  a good choice but if you want the video seen by the masses then YouTube is a better route in my opinion.

Thanks for the quick replies. Seems to work ok in IE, but not in Firefox.  :-\

Relating to a good point made by Peter, when uploading to UTube in settings you can, if you wish, set the Upload so it can only be viewed by those who have the link. Ie. those who read your FOG post.
If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.
